Saints not at their best but good enough to pick up three points

Oban Saints 3

East Kilbride 0

SAFL Premier Division

OBAN Saints returned to Scottish Amateur Football League Premier Division action last Saturday when they welcomed 2015-16 champions East Kilbride FC Amateurs to a cold but sunny Glencruitten.

Extended runs in the Scottish and West of Scotland amateur cups had restricted Saints to just six Premier Division fixtures so far with this being being their first league outing for almost four months.

The return of six players afforded manager Alex Craik the rare luxury of leaving himself out of the match day squad.

East Kilbride kicked off attacking the Mossfield end where their top marksman Johnny Diack forced an early corner kick after a sprint on the right with Scott Maitland. Paul Carmichael headed Reiss Tallon’s delivery clear before Scott Maitland’s tight hamstring forced him to call it a day after just 90 seconds.

Maitland’s departure forced a reshuffle in the Saints ranks with Jamie Graham moving to left back, Steven MacLeod to right back, Paul Carmichael dropping back to partner Marc Maccallum in the centre of defence with Carmichael’s midfield berth being taken up by substitute Shaun MacIver.
